I was really so thrilled and happy when my Espresso Coffee Cake came out so awesome last week. I was really over the moon. I made it again the day before and it was all gone the next day! I was so excited that I wanted to try out something new with coffee. Since the expresso coffee cake was so good, I thought I would try expresso coffee swiss roll. This is my first attempt in making swiss roll. I made it yesterday and it came out very successful….just fabulous. The cake was very moist and soft and full of coffee flavour. The coffee icing adds further smoothness to every bite. Another very happy day for me! My recipe to share again:

Ingredients A (cake)
6 eggs
3/4C sugar
1T espresso coffee (use more if you like)
1T hot water
100ml oil
1 & 1/4C self-raising flour (sieved)

Stir coffee and oil through the beaten egg

Beat the eggs and sugar for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Fold in the flour.

Dissolve the coffee with the hot water. Add it to the flour mixture together with the oil. Mix through gently.

Pour into 2 big, shallow tins and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 12 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Roll up the cake while still hot

Flip over onto a clean piece of baking paper and immediately roll it up with the help of the paper. Leave it to cool. While waiting, you can make the coffee cream to fill the swiss roll.

Ingredients B (espresso cream)
300 ml double cream
2T icing sugar
1/2T espresso coffee (use more if you like)
1T hot water

Slice and serve with more ceam if you like and some strawberry.

Baking cake is really exciting and interesting. I’ll definitely keep learning how to make more cakes and I’ll keep smiling. There’s so much to be thankful and so much to be happy for.

Wow…u can smell it from your side???? You must be a coffee queen! I’m sure so tempted to finish all but need to guide my waiste line….hmmm

Making Swiss roll reminds me of my days in culinary school. I haven’t made this in such a long time. We only have a small oven so I would probably make a Swiss role just for me. Haha. Just kidding. They are really fattening but it’s good to have them with friends once in a while.

Mary  on September 14th, 2009

Have to admit it is very fattening. Have to reward myself once in a while….hehe. Need to eat lots of kimchi, juice & exercise to balance out. Trying to keep to the 80/20 rule, ie, 80% healthy food & 20% ‘luxury’ food.

yum yum yum!!! I need some now to keep me awake coz im still working :(

deeba  on September 14th, 2009

Oh just wonderful Mary, I LOVE it! Can almost sniff the coffee here… My fave flavours in here. It’s a beautiful dessert to serve! Well done!

Divina  on September 20th, 2009

I agree with the 80/20 rule. But I think I went over 20 this month. Time to focus on eating healthy foods. :)

Mary  on September 21st, 2009

Jerokie, Deeba and Divina,thanks very much for your comments. Appreciate that. Coffee…oh…it makes the world go round just like chocolates. Haha, Divina, I think I have also broken my 80/20 rule this month. Never mind, once in a while.

I wish I hadn’t tried out this recipe because it was SO good I ate so much and have totally gone over and beyond the 80/20 rule. Very nice and strong coffee taste but just the right amount. I’m now going to eat a pack of fruits to make up for my overdose of luxury food. Great recipe though and not difficult to make for coffee mornings.

I luv coffee, therefore anything done with it, is a must try.Such a beautiful roll.Yummy.

Mary  on October 13th, 2009

@sherrie - Thanks for sharing. I’m just so amused and enjoyed reading it…..haha. You just need to go to gym more often and drink more freshly made juices to make up….haha

@Malaysian Delicacies - Thanks for sharing. This is a very nice recipe for coffee lovers…that includes me. It’s very delicious….moist and full of coffee flavour.
